Comment: The back cover of the dust jacket has a very slight crease. Otherwise, the book is like new. We found no marks, stains, tears, notes, rips, smudges, writing, underlining or highlighting. Not an old library book. Binding is tight, firm and unbroken. No loose pages.

Editorial Reviews


"Never before has a reader been able to make so extensive nor so ecumenical a pilgrimage to sites sacred to various groups and religions throughout the world. Brockman's encyclopedia should not be enshrined in reference collections; rather, it should be used there.'

Rettig on Reference"


Rettig on Reference (Gale.com)

"Seldom is one tempted to peruse all the entries in an encyclopedia. However, this descriptive compilation of worldwide religious sites makes for fascinating reading….this volume is recommended for students of religion, history, and cultural anthropology."



"There is a great deal here that can be used by high school students studying World War II, reading Greek mythology, or comparing religions. Recommended."


The Book Report

Book Description

The cultural power of sacred places seems to have diminished little, and perhaps even grown, in the modern era. Participation in pilgrimages has increased immensely in recent decades as greater numbers of people are able to travel the world to visit holy sites, partake in ceremonies and rituals, and add another dimension to the expression of their faith.
